    Title says it all really the audible and visual seatbelt warning doesn't seem to be working on my 55reg A6. The warning light illuminates on ignition and goes out, but doesn't come on along with any audible warning as it should if you don't wear your seatbelt.
    Any ideas? could it be a fuse?

    did it work before? you can change the coding in the instrument cluster to deactivate the warning on most new audi's. someone might have done this.

    He will get it back on and then ring you next week to turn the dam thing back off again, my wife thinks its funny to take her belt of just before the car stops so it beeps at me for 30 seconds as i drive off.
